Cancelation Rumors Swirl Around "Veronica Mars"

Cancelation Rumors Swirl Around "Veronica Mars"

The Internet is abuzz with rumors that The CW's "Veronica Mars" could be on the chopping block, but for now — at least — the show seems to be safe. E! Online's Kristin Veitch spoke with reliable sources this morning and reports that one of three things will probably happen to "Veronica":

  1. The show will come back in a different form, set four years in the future, with "Veronica as a full-fledged FBI agent," writes Veitch.
  2. The show will continue with Veronica in college.
  3. The show could be canceled.

An article in today's Hollywood Reporter also mentioned the possibility of a four-year fast-forward for season four. For the rest of the details,

According to the Hollywood Reporter story:

Thomas is filming a trailer for the alternative fourth season of the Warner Bros. TV/Silver Pictures show, which will be submitted to the CW. The network's executives ultimately will decide whether to pick up the series for another season and, if they do, whether to stick to the drama's current plot line or go with the new version.

Though Hollywood Reporters says that the new version would be set at the FBI Academy, Veitch's sources tell her the show would focus on Veronica as a full-fledged agent. She adds that star Kristen Bell is the only cast member currently starring in Thomas's "five- to six-minute featurette." (We already learned that Chris Lowell, who plays Piz on "VM," has been cast in the possible "Grey's" spinoff.

I know people love "Veronica Mars," and I am a big fan of Bell, but transforming this into a whole different show seems like it could be disastrous. What do you guys think? For more discussion, check out the "Veronica Mars" group on team.

I loved the first two seasons of Vm and this current season is a bit of a let down. There's been a few good things. I think they just need to revamp it slighty and come up with some better writing.

It would be a shame to cancel this show. I recently bought season 1 and 2 and was amazingly suprised at how good it was, I was instantly hooked, this show has everything: it's smart, witty, amazing love story, great acting,... They should keep it as it is, continue the story with Veronica going to College (and lots of Logan please), I really don't like the FBI idea.

It helps to give it more than one show because it is serialized and they are pretty good with the continuity and pace. Well written, as everyone said. But it's not for everyone. I for one love it, Rob Thomas, the cast, everything about it (have loved Rob Thomas since Cupid) so I'd be sad to see it go.

The CW has crazy people in charge. First they bring back crappy old 7th heaven then they cancel Everwood, which was a freaking awesome show. don't get ride of Veronica Mars.

I agree with you guys that it sucks when great shows are cancelled. It's such a cleverly written show, I reaallllly hope they don't cancel it! I think the 4years forward idea is kind of a compromise to the show's premise but if it'll save the show, I'll still be happy to watch it.

My boyfriend got seasons 1 and 2 for christmas, and we just finished the first, and I've been twisting his arm to start the 2nd. I'm kinda sad to hear that I have nothing to catch up to once we watch all of the episodes. I really do hope they create a show in the future. I'll need my fix! -Bug

I don't think I could stomach a cancellation of this show. This is the only show in all almost 22 years of my life I have actually followed full ride. I am a huge fan.

This season was the first season that I ever saw but I really like it. I think there are online petitions to save the show. They should get rid of 7th heaven and use all of the money from that show into better ones like Veronica Mars

I love Veronica Mars. I hope they don't cancel this show. I will be fine with any storylines for Season 4 as long as Veronica Mars is still on screen. The episodes are well written and its so amazing to watch.

I am so mad about the potential cancellation of Veronica Mars. This show is well written, witty and intelligent. I think its ridiculous that the CW brought back the horse that was beaten to death, aka 7th Heaven, and is thinking of cancelling a show that is actually worth watching. Ridiculous. Just ridiculous.

i used to catch a show every once and a while and i found it freaking witty and enjoyable. when it changed to the CW i watch it religious( especially that they paired it with Gilmore Girls, a fave of mine also.) it's a great show and i'll be sad to see it leave. i can see how the story lines of this season could turn people off but it's still so wonderfully written. and i love kristen bell, she's adorable. i'm not sure how i feel about the four years in the future thing. it could be ok.

I agree that there have been many great shows that have been cancelled, but I don't consider myself dumb for not liking Veronica Mars. Perhaps I am just to old to get why it is so great?

Yes, the general public is just dumb. I always feel like they don't understand any of this show, can anyone say: twin peaks, american gothic, pasadena!!!!

Luxifer --I agree with you...there are so many good, well written shows that don't get the ratings or the funding...yet companies spend money so that Paris Hilton can have a reality show or people can create other vapid shows....or we can watch more adults running around more concerned about who their sleeping with on the show, than anyhting their actual will never make sense to me...

If Veronica Mars gets cancelled I know a bunch of people who are going to drink the cool-aid. It has such a hard-core following I can't imagine that the ratings are so bad to actually get it pulled.

EnticinHipHop--i really feel like the general public is just dumb. There are a lot of really well written shows that get canceled (Freaks and Geeks, Wonderfalls, Arrested Development)while shows like, One Tree Hill, The Simple Life, 7th Heaven, keep coming back and staying on. I think fast forwarding 4 years would be great! Now THAT'S breaking the rules of television (please take note Shonda Rhimes).

I don't under stand...Veronica Mar's is a well written and thought out show, yet people are more interested in a show like Grey's Anatomy...but a show that is actually well written and thought out and not overly-sexualized doesn't get viewership...I don't get it...

I do not know anyone who watches this show. I heard it was supposed to be so good so I tried to watch it once. I couldn't get through the episode because it was so stupid.
